Sasquatchploitation: Top 51 Bigfoot Movies



Sasquatchploitation? Yeah I said it. Sasquatchploitation is an reference to the portmanteau of blacksploitation. Blacksploitation is a film genre that emerged in the United States in the early 1970s when many exploitation films were made that targeted the urban black audience.

Well I choose the term carefully. Blacksploitation movies stereotyped african- americans, the audience they aimed to appeal to, as pimps and drug dealers.

I feel most of these sasquatch movies also stereotype Bigfoot as a monster-of-the-week horror show or a cuddly cute wookie to have as a pet. Expand the full post to see the full list of the 51 BF movies and their respective The Internet Movie Database rating.

  3. Secret of Bigfoot is actually 1976. I recently watched it online -- it was probably the biggest TV event of my childhood.

  4. Night of the Demon (1980) is the ultimate Sasquatchploitation film.

  5. I also feel that Creature From Black Lake (1976) deserves it's place on this list. And Abominable (2006).

  6. Snowbeast was good. It terrorized a ski resort and ate its victims.
